COLLEGE STATION – Identification and management of toxic plants in Texas, along with the associated signs of livestock poisoning and recommended treatment, will be the subject of an Aug. 1 webinar conducted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.

“An integrated approach can be the most effective way to minimize livestock losses due to toxic plant poisoning,” according to Dr. Alyson McDonald, AgriLife Extension range specialist in Fort Stockton and webinar presenter.

This webinar is part of the Texas Range Webinar Series conducted monthly by AgriLife Extension’s ecosystem science and management unit. Each webinar is scheduled from noon to 1 p.m., according to Brittany Grube, webinar coordinator in College Station.

Participants seeking Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units must pay a $10 fee on the website. For all others, there is no fee, Grube said. Licensed agricultural private pesticide applicators participating in this webinar can earn one integrated pest management continuing education unit.

This webinar and others in the series can be accessed at http://naturalresourcewebinars.tamu.edu. Continuing education units for archived webinars will only be available for one month following the live version of the webinar. After the month has passed, the webinar will still be available to watch, but participants will not be able to register for or receive credits.

For more information on the webinars, contact Grube at Brittany.grube@agnet.tamu.edu  .
